Beekeeper For The Day - A Peek Into The World Of Beekeeping

Curious about honey bees and beekeeping?  Looking for a unique experience?

At Backed By Bees we are excited to pull the curtains back on the beekeeping world and get you close to honey bees and their homes.  During the hour long experience, our expert beekeeper will take the group into the Backed By Bees main honey bee yard. 

Throughout the experience we will light a smoker, open a honey bee colony, interact with the honey bees and see the internal workings of a colony. 

While in the yard, you will be introduced to all the sights, sounds and smells and tastes that roughly 30 hives and 2 million honey bees have to offer. 

Become the beekeeper for the day and see if what really happens in the world of beekeeping!

*You will be around live honey bees.  Stinging is always a possibility.  Wear closed toed shoes and well fitted clothing.  We will be walking on a wood chip path.  Protective equipment will be available for all who wish to dawn it.  Also, best to avoid bananas on the day of the experience....any idea why? Find out from the beekeeper!
